Newly re-launched as LOVERSTARRS, Sarah McIntosh (vocals) and her brother Hamish (bass and synths), tease us with a taste of their debut album in the form of lead single Get Your Sexy On, due for release on 3rd June.
The slick electronic outfit, formerly known as The Good Natured whilst signed to Parlophone/EMI, return with their unique brand of unashamed electro-pop thanks to a little help from their fans via a successful Kickstarter campaign, which has funded forthcoming LP Planet Lovestarr set to drop this August.
Now signed to new independent label DEFDISCO, who can already boast the likes of Public Enemy amongst their roster, the sibling are stepping up their game with Get Your Sexy On, an encouraging ode to lovers intertwined in a rapturous and motivating melody. B-side Drop Dead Gorgeous supports the track in an equally light-hearted manner, slowly revealing a straight woman’s interest in another girl.
No strangers to the unexpected, in a former incarnation the band had a string of European hits and were praised by the likes of The Guardian, NME, Clash and The 405, but received a crushing blow when their album was shelved prior to its already confirmed release with Parlophone/EMI. Now, with the backing of artist-empowering label DEFDISCO, Sarah and Hamish are back with a vengeance – and nothing will stop them this time.
